World of Work Theme Theme work S3 Themed Fortnight 26 th November – 7 th December 2012
Themed fortnight The story so far….. PE - Physical Challenges Drama – Tableaux English – Balloon debate Tree of Knowledge Theme work
Tree of Knowledge…….Some feedback: The talk at the end about success has really made me think differently about my future in a good way. I also enjoyed myself a lot. It was good fun. It was a great experience and made me think about how to get to where I want to get to when I'm older. The challenges were fun.
Theme work Good and interesting. I learned to keep my mind open. It made me think about my attitude towards something and how I can change it. I learned a lot about mind set.
Subject Fair - Aims To allow you to speak with members of staff about the new courses that will be on offer in your fourth and fifth years.
